Preview the Art Featured in LA BOHÈME

The Opera Company of Philadelphia's new production of La Bohème features and draws from a collection of Impressionist masterpieces found at The Barnes Foundation and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Some of the works appear on stage in animated HD projections while others provided the inspiration for costumes and set design. We encourage you to visit Philadelphia's venerable art museums to enjoy these works in person!
